    They might be at that, however, I really believe that there are only 2 reasons for what happened....

    a. The owner made the change and not the HC.

    b. The HC made the change because of the OL play.

    Both seem pretty plausible at this point, but I am going to trend towards the OL scenario. Rationale, the OL is playing like crap and they already got the "Starter" hurt. Vicks leggs are back, thus he is more mobile, and most importantly, the owner has never once (that we know of) veto'd anything that Coach Reid has done yet.

    Why would he start now?

    Re: Kevin Kolb

    Once a QB has shown that he's prone to getting concussed out of a game.....I think his days are numbered.

    The smart guys are retiring rather than risking brain damage.

    Aikman had 10...

    Steve had 7.....

    of course you call it quits after that

    Any recent examples of people that had 2 maybe 3?

    Then maybe none of them are smart.

    Re: Kevin Kolb

    The ones that got out are smart.

    And Favre is thinking about it.....I honestly hope he gets out.

    Although he might as well play the Lions game, maybe the cowboys.

    Things won't get real dangerous until the Jets game (Jets have a great pass rush) so.....draw the paycheck through the bye and then hurt his ankle early in the Jets game, take a rest, come back for a few plays in the Cowboys game and call it a career.

    Sure as HELL better not play the Packers!!! That would be suicidal. They actually have a great pass rush and are lusting for revenge.

    And us without competent pass protection. Doesn't take a rocket scientist.

    So you are saying the Eagles FO operates just like the Vikings FO where the coach has a boner for a QB who is not up to snuff and they have to force him to play a better player he has no desire to have out there on the field?

    Re: Kevin Kolb

    I hope Kolb has the good judgment to get out.

    It was sad to see him standing there with that stunned and blank look on his face while his brain was concussed.

    How badly does he want early dementia?

    Hang it up, Kolb.
